Event Summary
This established show [35 years] has consistantly been one of the top shows in the country and was ranked #59 in Sunshine Artists Magazine's top 200 Fine Art Shows for 2017.  It is held in Historic Breckenridge [voted the 3rd most beautifull small town in America!] and will be limited to approximately 125  fine artists and craftsmen chosen from around the country.  The town is an old gold mining town established in the late 1800's, now a major ski area with many restaurants and unique shops located in Summit County (which includes Copper Mtn.,Silverthorne, Frisco and Keystone)just 80 miles from Denver in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
